2010 GEOTRACES Asia Planning Workshop

4 October 2010 - 6 October 2010

2010 GEOTRACES Asia Planning Workshop
Dates: 4-6 October 2010
Location:  Taipei, Taiwan

Website of the Workshop: http://proj3.sinica.edu.tw/~geotrace/index.htm


East and South Asia, the most populous region on Earth, face the Western Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean, and their marginal seas. Diverse anthropogenic and natural forcings coexist and interact in the biogeochemical cycling of TEIs in these waters. However, their key regulating processes remain largely to be explored. In this workshop, potential key processes that regulate and control the biogeochemical cycles of TEIs, such as their sources, distributions, internal cycling, sinks, and their use as tracers or proxies, will be identified and discussed. These discusses will culminate in the formation of a future action plan in TEI research in the region. Contributors are invited to present highlights of their recent relevant findings and provide comments and suggestions on the future action and cruise plan. Here, we would like to invite researchers to participate in this workshop.
